Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement

 

The Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) model aims to support better and more efficient care for beneficiaries undergoing the most common inpatient surgeries for Medicare beneficiaries: hip and knee replacements (also called lower extremity joint replacements or LEJR). This model tests bundled payment and quality measurement for an episode of care associated with hip and knee replacements to encourage hospitals, physicians, and post-acute care providers to work together to improve the quality and coordination of care from the initial hospitalization through recovery.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (“CMS”) has mandated that West Jefferson Medical Center and the entire New Orleans Metropolitan Statistical Area participate in this program. Below is a list of our contracted collaborators in the program:

Physician Clinic Address Status in Program
Dr. Wesley Clark Jefferson Orthopedic Clinic 920 Avenue B, Marrero, LA 70072 Current
Dr. Matthew Grimm Jefferson Orthopedic Clinic 920 Avenue B, Marrero, LA 70072 Current
